Color Throwdown #494

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Amy Rohl !! 

This week we're playing with red, blue, and white.

Sooo.... I have to admit these colors stumped me a little. LOVE that poppy and the inspiration pic but, kept thinking July 4th. At the time, I also wanted to play with some Verve (old and new) since I hadn't in the longest time!! The new monthly Verve sketch was out too. Anywho, I pulled out the stamps, did some white embossing and coloring with zig markers. There are elements I like and others I wish I had the time to do over- have you ever felt that way :-)

I think my new sweet granddaughter is throwing me off :-)

She's just chillin" in her boppy!! Yes, I know it's on the edge of the couch- we were right there just outside of the pic!! Her name is Willow Grace and she is a trooper- diagnosed with coarctation (stenosis) of the aorta and a hypoplastic left heart at 22 weeks. We were blessed that the hypoplastic left heart didn't require surgery!! She did have surgery on her aorta at 9 days old and she is fine now!!
